High Performance Nutrition:
RYLIE ELLIS, Sports Dietician, practising at OPTIMUS Health Group, made this presentation to our VNL players on their nutritional requirements:
- Nutrition Foundations
- Pre-Training / game day
- Female specific nutrition
LISA MIDDLETON, Advanced Sports Dietician practising at Lifecare Ashburton has advised us about adding some health and nutrient-dense snacks to our kiosk options.
Variety and choice
By expanding our canteen options, we are providing variety and new choices to meet a range of individual health needs and personal preferences.
Nutrition can have a significant impact on energy levels and performance, and the food players eat before and after games can make a difference.
Post-netball nutrition can help speed up recovery and leave players feeling fresh for the next training session or game. Foods such as fruit, nuts/seeds, yoghurt and milk-based drinks are all great recovery snacks.
Health and wellness
We care about your health! We are not trying to go too over-the-top with healthy canteen choices, but introduce small changes to offer you tasty options that are also good for you, to keep you both happy and healthy!
